Windy and I did some chores and then to congratulate ourselves we went to the Hammer Museum for a quick visit.
Kaitlin was off to Catalina for a couple of nights for a school field trip. I can’t wait to see her pictures and hear stories. Oh goodie goodie.
This is Angela’s picture of Lilly’s Girl Scouts troop making a Valentines Day party room at the local fire station. They’ve done other projects with these guys, and aren’t they an adorable team.
Windy and I went for an early dinner in Hollywood and then Marsha met us for a show of standup comedians.
Here’s what they say about their show:
“You Kids Get Off My Lawn! is the only show in town featuring comics over thirty. Lena Valentine and Charles Park host some grown-#ss comedy at a reasonable hour because that’s what adults do. None of this midnight on a Tuesday b######t – book a babysitter, come have a laugh, have a drink, and be home in time for The Daily Show. Always fun and always free.”
I should add that a fine table of adult beverages was on offer, also free, donations gladly accepted.
I am extremely hopeless trying to get selfies. Two hands is def not the way to go. Oh well. ‘We’ wanted a picture and we had no mirrors in sight. I went with the cousins Sharon and Nancy to see the Academy nominated shorts for Live Action and Animation.
It’s fun to have seen them even though I wouldn’t recommend the collection this year, especially the live action. Let’s hope for better next year.
My three extremely annoying water heaters for the three units. One of them experienced a three day ordeal until Alex came with a new one.
They are all pretty old and I was so done with problems I was thinking of changing them all. But cooler heads prevailed and I realized the actual cost of these babies. Yikes. So one down and two to go later…much later I hope!
I got this picture from another guest since my angle wasn’t good. Back on Thursday I went to the opening of this event at which Jo Ann is the featured artist.
This is the sold-out panel discussion in conjunction with the show. It’s all just down the road at the old Santa Monica Airport, on for four days, and so I’m having a great time visiting often.
I’ll tell you there are so very many gross pictures on the internet should you google for ‘dental implant’. So gross, but this one gives the idea without causing your stomach to roil.
It’s about ready to happen for me but I’ve still got to go get a temporary made before next Thursday. I’m hoping to get it all done in one visit, that’s a relatively new thing, and the dentist wouldn’t promise, only that she would try.
February 14, 2019 and Xander is SEVENTEEN Years Old.
Oh my goodness Xander, I remember you when you were just >this< big, born a dear child and grown into a fine human being. You go Xander! I know your parents have shelves full of memory lane but I had fun anyway gathering what pictures I could find of fabulous YOU! And I'm glad you like your sister because she's all over these pictures too... With YEARS of love from the day you were born and YEARS more to infinity and beyond.
Here are all the troops in the South Bay that participated and their countries. Each display included a flag and a representative snack. A few stopped there but most also did poster boards, wore costumes, and everyone was having a good time.
Lilly was having a crazy good time because of all the snacks.
Remember when I punked out of a March trip to Jordan and Egypt because the three months at the end of the year did me in? This is my host in Jordan, Mindy, and here she is in Dubai having finished a Spartan Race. You can find Spartan Races all over the world and I’ll only say it looks like a tryout for the Navy Seals, if the Navy Seals operated in the desert.
A few days ago I said my eye had turned to St Petersburg-Tallinn-Riga-Vilnius-Minsk which is true, but this can be a late summer early fall trip. Jordan and Egypt needs to be in Spring, March-April-May for the best chance of good weather. Maybe the Baltic this Fall and Mindy in Spring 2020? 2020, WOW.
Ken and I went to see The 7 Fingers: Réversible at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica.
The show was so fantastic, so over-the-top fabulous, we were awestruck for the entire ninety minutes. It was a little Cirque de Soleil-ish in that it was acrobatic dancers from French speaking Canada but without all the gear and staging, just breathtaking performances with a few modest props.
